Classic Victorian merges with contemporary chic at Redcliffe House. High-ceilinged rooms offer ample space and large sash windows frame beautiful garden and city views. Sleek, wooden flooring radiates warmth and charm, and snug outdoor courtyards and patios offer cosy retreats in which to curl up and relax with a book. Intricately-moulded fireplaces add elegant appeal while comfortably-sized rooms with spacious en suite bathrooms promise plenty of comfort at the end of the day.
Known for its eclectic mix of restaurants, boutiques and sidewalk cafés, Gardens is one of Cape Town’s coolest, most cosmopolitan suburbs. Vibrant Kloof Street runs through the heart of the neighbourhood and makes a wonderful place to explore quirky vintage shops for hidden treasures or sip a frothy cappuccino and watch the world go by. Table Mountain forms a majestic backdrop to this suburb and access to the Mother City’s major attractions is easy: the V&A Waterfront and beautiful beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton are just a short drive away.
The villa is ideal for families and groups of friends looking for the creature comforts of home with the added luxury of hotel services.
Head to the Mother City between November and March for long, hot summer days and barbeque-perfect nights. Be prepared for crowded beaches and busy restaurants in peak-season December and January but the cooler weather of March and April makes autumn a great time to visit.
While the May to September winters are rainy and cool, they are perfect for exploring Cape Town and its surrounds. Curl up in front of a crackling fire with a classic Cape vintage and take advantage of the glorious sunny spells in between rainy days to explore the Cape Winelands and Whale Coast.
Secure off-street parking is available.
A fully-equipped kitchen with timber finishes features modern amenities and plenty of accessories, ideal for self-catering convenience. Guests are welcomed with a fully-stocked fridge and can pre-order specific items.
Situated on the first floor, the master bedroom is a study in elegant luxury. Creamy natural tones and sleek wooden flooring create a warm, inviting ambience. French doors open onto a private courtyard and manicured garden while large bay windows frame beautiful garden views. A spacious en suite bathroom with double rain shower offers a sensual escape.
Guest bedrooms are located on both the second and third floors. The second-storey guest room is decorated in monochromatic tones with unique African artworks and two twin beds; the third-storey bedroom is accompanied by a spacious en suite bathroom and has access to a shady patio and the pool deck.
The master and third level bedrooms have light, spacious en suite bathrooms with large showers and luxury toiletries while the second bedroom has a separate bathroom with elegant oval bath. A convenient guest toilet is situated on the second floor.
Spacious, airy and light, the living room sits at the heart of Redcliffe House. Chic sofas, soft lighting and smooth wooden floors radiate comfort and style, and the large 10-seater dining table easily plays host to lavish dinner parties. Elegant fireplaces in both rooms promise cosy nights while high, moulded ceilings and ornate cornices add a charming Victorian appeal.
The living room opens onto a small and secluded balcony with beautiful views of Table Mountain and the bustling city below. A shaded sunken patio with comfortable lounge area is situated on the lowest level next to the L-shaped pool, complete with stylish timber decking and comfortable sun loungers.
